U. S. Army Awards Remington Arms Co. Inc., $1.7 Million Contract for Model 870 Modular Combat Shotgun Systems

Madison, NC – The U.S. Army Tank-Automotive & Armaments Command, Rock Island, Ill. has awarded Remington Arms Co. Inc., a $1.7 million contract for the purchase of more than 1400 Model 870 Modular Combat Shotgun systems. The Model 870 MCS systems will ultimately be utilized in our Nation’s efforts in the global war on terrorism.

The asymmetrical nature of the modern battlefield has redefined the role of the shotgun for today's soldier. The greater need for versatility, durability and reliability has made current military shotgun offerings obsolete. Remington has responded to these changing needs with a Combat Shotgun System that provides unmatched operator-level modularity; the Model 870 Modular Combat Shotgun (MCS).

For the first time ever, operators can assemble a shotgun system with unheard-of speed and without tools to match unfolding tactical situations. With the MCS a soldier can assemble the system as an Accessory Weapon, a Ballistic Breaching Tool, a CQB Weapon or a High-Capacity Conventional Shotgun.

For more information related to the 870 MCS and Remington’s extensive line of Military and Law Enforcement firearms and ammunition, please visit our websites at or
